You’d never knot it by reading the lame-ass local media, but the Eagles coaches have been impressed by a couple of their newest additions, as reported by MMQB’s Albert Breer:
We mentioned last week that the Eagles see anything they get from second-round corner Sidney Jones in 2017 as a bonus. Good news: Third-round corner Rasul Douglas (above) is impressing early, which could help quell temptation to push Jones.
While we’re there, wideout Alshon Jeffery has made a great early impression on the Philly coaches. He’s in shape—one staffer said he looks like a “freak”—and all this jibes with what Bears coaches were saying about him last summer, before his 2016 went sideways.
